Gumby male

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Gumby Ratbone is a SPECIAL boy! We were alerted to his plight when a video of him trembling in a cage at a high kill shelter in South Florida was posted. The shelter said his medical was normal - they did not list anything about his rotten and broken teeth. Poor Gumby had MAJOR periodontal disease, and many of his teeth were already missing. He had to have TEN teeth removed, but he pulled thru like nothing happened. Gumby is a very affectionate boy. He is fine with cats and dogs of small to medium size. He isn't happy around larger dogs, and will growl at them - but he responds quickly when he is asked to behave. Gumby is crate trained and enjoys snuggling in bed with his fostermom and some of the other critters. He is GREAT on a leash, and loves to just chill out and watch DVDs and TV shows. Any applicants should understand and accept that Gumby should have regular check ups, and may very likely need yearly dental cleanings, to take care of the remaining teeth that he has. Gumby is about 7 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He loves lamb & rice dry food and he likes "stew"type canned food. Gumby is ready for a great home, one who will adore him and really take care of this special boy. More pictures of Gumby Ratbone can be found here in his album.

Molly Brown female

2017-06-15

Location: Oklahoma

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Molly Brown Ratbone is unsinkable! She was rescued from a kill shelter in Oklahoma. Molly is between 7 and 10 years old (our vets says 7, the shelter said 10), and weighs only 9 pounds (she's a little pudgy). She has a half-tail with a little kink near the end - probably natural. Molly is tolerant of other dogs, and will even play with persistent ones, but it is obvious that she was once an only dog - and that's how she prefers things; she tries to ignore the kitties in her foster home. We have not had her around children, but with her timid nature we feel that Molly would be happiest in an adults only home. Shortly after her arrival, Molly had a dental, so her teeth are healthy and clean. This little girl is crate trained, house broken, and very sweet and loving. She would be the perfect partner for a single person or a couple who loves to read, watch TV, and putter around the yard. You can see more pictures of our Molly Brown here in her photo album.

Max male

2017-08-12

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Seniors need love too! Max was surrendered by his family to a high kill shelter - at the age of 12 years! He came to us with an old injury to his back leg - which can't be fixed now, due to his age - and horrible dental disease. Max has had a complete dental cleaning, and he is now ready and eager for his retirement home. Max is dog friendly, and is a happy boy. He LOVES to play fetch with tennis balls, even though he doesn't have many teeth left.Would you consider sharing your love with this happy, active fellow for the rest of his life?

Lani female

2014-07-30

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lani is short for Solana, which is a Native American word for sunshine. Itís the perfect name for a gal who loves to lay by the pool and nap in the sun. While retired and living in Florida now, Laniís beginnings were quite different. Through research we have found that she is the result of the breeding of two NRTA foundation stock Rat Terriers. Her bloodline is 71.87% Decker. Her dam is Sycamore Flats Jackie and her sire is Sycamore Flats Tuffy. Lani was born 4/26/03, is 17.5 inches at the withers, and a skinny 25 pounds. She is sweet and gentle. Lani gets along well with her foster siblings but has been unsuccessful at getting them to play with her. She is a finicky eater, and requires a grain free diet to avoid skin irritation. During Lani's first couple of months in foster care she lived with cats and wanted to chase them, but she did not harm them. More photos of Lani are available here.
